Hi all,

I’m helping a friend identify a collection of Japanese prints collected by her aunt who recently passed away. I’ve been able to identify all of them except this one.
The artist’s seal reads “Y.M” and that’s the only identifying mark.
Thanks in advance for your help!

    maybe Yoshida Masazo, 1906-1972, but with low confidence. He does that kind of prints, and signs with his initials, I have seen M. and M. Y.  but not Y. M.

    Thank you. I'm shocked at how little there is online about Yoshida Masazo, even in Japanese.

    I actually have one more print that I need help with. It has no artist signature or title or anything. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    it is page 12 of a book. Since the title is not given in the margin, it is rather difficult to identify it.

    the scene (but not necessarily the book) is from the 17th or 18th c.
